Product description


Teddy is such a lucky little boy to have Elle as his mummy. I have no doubt that he is so proud of the way Elle speaks about him and honours him in all that she does. A beautiful book, from a wonderful woman, about a very special little boy * Giovanna Fletcher * Ask Me His Name has touched me like no other book has ever done. I did not want to put it down until it was finished. An incredibly powerful, raw, honest and emotional story of a wonderful family and the heartbreaking loss of their beautiful baby boy, Teddy, told through the words of his loving mum. This book will stay with you long after you have put it down * Jools Oliver * To be able to openly share the unthinkable and write about Teddy with such truth, honesty, beauty and humour takes huge courage. This is such an important book that spoke to me on so many levels - it will give you a deeper understanding about the reality of grief and the true meaning of a mother's love -- Izzy Judd, bestselling author of Dare to Dream Though heartbreaking in places, Ask Me His Name is a remarkably uplifting tale of a mother's love for her son who was born but could not stay. By offering such a raw and honest insight into what happened, Elle opens up the conversation and this in turn helps us all to not be afraid to say something - anything! - to parents who have lost children, when we might otherwise have said nothing at all. This is such an important read and it must have taken an extraordinary amount of courage to write and share the most personal of stories with the world -- Sarah Turner, The Unmumsy Mum Bold, compelling and heartwrenchingly honest, this story of how humans can cope in the darkest of hours will blow you away * Marina Fogle * It takes a huge amount of courage to re-integrate into the world again after your anticipated version of motherhood has been so brutally and painfully ripped away from you. Yet fuelled by the love of Teddy, Elle has managed to transform her pain into power, becoming a beacon of healing light for all that is so very much needed in this world -- Anna Lewis (sketchymuma)

Elle Wright is a wife, mother, homemaker, and blogger. After the death of her son, Teddy, at three days old, Elle started writing to navigate her new life and as a way to feel purpose again. Her Feathering The Empty Nest blog is a way of finding light in darkness, positivity in times of desperation and, hopefully, making a few people laugh along the way.
